. >> jim: i think one thing that i would like to see against good hitters like morneau and mauer, just use the fastball until they prove that they're going to get after it. go ahead and challenge it away. trying to move that breaking ball to the outside corner. >> jim: you made an interesting comment at our production meeting today about how when young pitchers come to the major leagues, they have a vision in mind that they have to throw everything for a strike including the breaking ball and the change-up the fastball, that because they have it, they have to use it. >> buck: well, you have to throw everything for a strike, but don't have to do it to every batter. that's the rob, they want to come out and three everything all the time, but they need to just utilize that fastball. show a batter everything in the first at bat, and then you have to face him in the 7th inning with two on, and you have no surprises. you can't trick him, surprise him, catch him off guard, because you've shown him everything through throughout the course of the early part of the game. >> jim: 3-2 on morneau. a
and in? >> nobody out. swoun on and miss. that's the pitcher has been using against him. >> these are the situational as we look at matt palmer, 8-1 as starter. out of the bullpen with you situational hitting get the runner over. you have huff with the double. bring him up, may bring the infield in. make him a better hitter. >> long look by weaver. markakis jammed. 74 pitches have been thrown by weaver. that's one of the reason there's is action in the bullpen and the orioles have continued to find ways to hit him pretty hard. >> one of those nights. we see them all the time and again when your era is up around five a game and the wild pitches, orioles trying to keep it going. and that will call for a conference here. markakis as we noted at the top having a great august. he is hitting 354 into the ball game this month. has one of the orioles home runs in the month of august. there haven't been many. the only one for two was adam jones for this month. nick has had the bat going as part of that six game hit streak. >> batting practice is a lot different than hitting i
at chicago, and looking to put back to back good starts. >> buck: he really did a good job in chicago. used he first ball very effectively. i think for jerusalem guthrie, -- jeremy guthrie, he has to work to finish the season strong.   >>> the orioles close out t nine-game road trip. normal reimold has had a heck of a trip, and continues to make a case that he should get support for rookie of the year. >> buck: he sure does. >> jim: i spoke with him about facing big league pitching day- in and day-out. >> yeah, i guess it's a little bit of an adjustment facing this good of pitching a on consistent base, but just one of those things where night in and night out, you just have to bear down ask concentrate and have good at bats, and, you know, it's -- you've seen guys like this before, but just not on this consistent of a basis. >> jim: one of the aspect ross your game that is fascinating because of your lack of experience is how selective you are at the plate. have you accumulated that and acquired that as you've played, oral was had it? >> i guess i've develo

are playing a crucial role in getting us out of this recession and into recovery. at the sba, we believe in the power and potential of minority- owned small businesses. we know that small businesses create over 70% of the jobs in this country and half of americans who work own or work for a small business. small businesses drive competition and a drive 23rd century jobs. today, the sba is working to make sure that minority-owned businesses can not only survive but can grow. we have three priorities to do that. first, implementing the recovery act. the second is reinvesting in our agency. the third is to be the strongest possible voice of small business across the administration. first, the recovery act. economic stimulus. all of you know what happened in october. in october, banks stopped lending. credit lines froze. small businesses were struggling to find the capital that they need. congress and this administration understood that the small business community needed some extra help. they included over $700 million for the sba in the recovery act. it has been six months. this has been a

report for jason berken, he throws all four pitches. he used his two-seam fastball effectively the last time out against the white sox. he needs to work down in the zone. i don't think there is any mystery about his movement and the ability to get ground balls when he is down in the bottom of that strike zone that was a very good formula for him against the white sox. he threw very well into the sixth inning and had two double plays because of the single and his fastball. his 18th start of the season for berken, just three wins. all of the numbers are something he would like to improve upon here as he winds down his first major league season. he works hard all the time in between trying to refine his pitches and make sure his location is as sharp as it can be. >> gary: and let the defensive work behind him, which it has. >> buck: it sure has, gary. markakis, and adam dunn is still dealing with the back issue. mora and izturis have been great in the last week or sot. mat wieters is behundred the plate. >> and with that, after the rain delay, we are yesterday r ready to go. grady sizemore
